Princess Diana And Clintonian Fascism

As Byron York points out in this article, the British tabs are unreliable. However, the spectacle of Clinton's America wiretapping the luscious, roundheeled, flibberdigibit of the Royal Family is too good not to print. Whatever could William Jefferson Clinton want to spy on such a lady for? I suspect visits to the White House for her were not unlike a remake of Porky's shower scene.

The British tabs suspect it was her work on land mines, and Mickey Kaus thinks it was because of her relationship with a megabucks mogul, Forstman who was eyeing N.Y.'s Senate seat in 2000. A seat that went to the unlovely, unapproachable, tergament of the Clinton Family.

Of course, the part that is best is that GWB has used Executive Power to wiretap foreign conversations with suspected Al Queda terrorists. The Left calls this illegal and him a fascist bent on tampering with the rights of ordinary Americans. Clinton spies on Di and he is their hero still. Bobby Kennedy spied on Martin Luther King, and he gets loving hagiographies to this day. Maybe we do need Hillary as President because a Lefty Democrat will be able to what is necessary to beat our enemies without the caterwauling of the great and good. Unfortunately, they apparently use this carte blanche to look up the Royal Knickers and Republican FBI files.

Well, this explains the recent straw shortage on the East Coast.

The warrantless wiretapping of calls to and from American citizens is illegal; that has been what the Left has been decrying. Listening in on conversations taking place outside the US between foreigners may be questionable ethically and I am sure some on the farthest reaches of the left object to it, but it is perfectly legal, in the sense that there are no US laws against it, and most objections to warrantless domestic wiretapping draw a specific distinction between the two practices.

The rest of the post is chaff and should be treated as such, i.e. brushed aside contemptuously. "Too good not to print" is, if memory serves, the corporate motto of Regnery Press.
